A new era has arrived. A construction revolution: strength and quality combined with speed and efficiency. PreBuck technology now offers the fastest, smartest and strongest construction solutions available today. Save time and money while building superior durability into every project.
PreBuck innovations for insulated concrete forming (ICF), tilt-up, cast-in-place, and cinderblock (CMU) applications are unprecedented within the industry and custom manufactured to design specifications.
Specifically designed for direct contact with concrete and non-corrosive to metals, PreBuck products feature Strandguard (LSL) engineered lumber treated with zinc borate for exceptional resistance to insects and decay. PreBuck products also feature MDI resin, the 100% waterproof bonding agent that turns to a durable plastic when cured.
Combining these quality components with PreBuck's advanced engineering and you're guaranteed the most efficient, cost savings and time savings construction technology available today.
